Forum: prelinger Subject: download questions: FTP, MPG2

I am trying to download Prelinger archive films via FTP.

When I choose a film to download, there generally no "FTP" link next to "All Files", only "HTTP". If there is no FTP link shown, I take it there is no FTP address to download these from?

Here is an example of a film I would like to download via FTP:

http://www.archive.org/details/Roundand1939

I am on a Mac with OS 10.4.11 using Safari or Firefox. I have Fetch for FTP.

ftp link was taken down due to some sort of abuse, but ftp access still works. all you need to do is replace "http" to "ftp" in address string:

http://ia300103.us.archive.org/1/items/Roundand1939/
ftp://ia300103.us.archive.org/1/items/Roundand1939/
